How To Scoot Into Shape With Micro
Are you looking for an exercise regime you can actually stick to? One that doesn’t break the bank to keep up with but has real results?
This post will show you how you can use am adult scooter to get into shape quickly and cost effectively. Yes, really, a scooter.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND SCOOTING
A recent University of Brighton study found that scooting for 45 minutes burns an average of 350 calories an hour? That’s equivalent to around 1lb a week weight loss. In comparison, walking for 45 minutes burns 149 calories, cycling 270 calories and running 450 calories.
Scooting provides a great aerobic workout without the fuss of going to a gym, buying new sportswear or getting too sweaty. It’s easy to incorporate into your everyday life and is great for the mind as well as the body.
THE SCHOOL RUN
Did you know if you scooted to school with the children every day of the school term you could lose nearly a stone. Added to this are the practical benefits scooting provides on the school run. No need to find a parking space, no traffic jams and no need to avoid traffic wardens!
Also, tell any child that you will be scooting alongside them and suddenly shoes are found, school bags are packed and lunch-bags are ready. It’s magic. Parent magic.
A 10 minute scoot to the station in the morning could burn around 80 calories. It is also means you can get to the station quicker, easier and earlier – more time to bag that elusive seat on the train.
Take the pain out of train / tube / tram journeys and scoot to work. Not only will you save on travel costs but you will be able to do the commute on your own terms.
Did you know the average person takes 20 minutes to walk a mile – its half that time on a scooter.
